Big Picture: The 24th Infantry Division in Korea
DVD copied by Master Scanner Thomas Gideon. Department of Defense. Department of the Army. Office of the Deputy Chief of Staff for Operations. U.S. Army Audiovisual Center. (ca. 1974 - 05/15/1984). This is the story of the 24th Infantry Division in Korea and of its magnificent performance. The 24th Division was formed out of the old Hawaiian division shortly before Pearl Harbor, and it fought bravely in many decisive battles in the Southwest Pacific that followed. With victory, it went on occupation duty in Japan. When war came again, the men of the 24th were the first Americans to reach the bitter and tragic soil of Korea. In this film presentation, viewers will follow the history of the 24th Infantry Division from their first difficult days of battle in Korea until November 1954, when the proud colors of the Division marched in Korea for the last time. This is the first program dealing with a division that fought in Korea. Five other division histories will be covered in subsequent programs to be released.
